“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” —Bob Ross
It was such an awesome time for me to be a guest art teacher at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle last weekend. The kids and parents had fun sharing their art experiences together, while making Animal Portraits in Mixed-Media & Collage. If you still want a chance to attend, then you can join me once again on Sunday, April 14th at Pratt. (Details are farther below in the class description.)
